      The Order Book of Charles City County has the following: "January Court 1741:--The last will and testament of Lieut. Col. Drury Stith, deceased, was presented in court by Susanna Stith and William Stith two of the executors therein named, and was proved by the oaths of the witnesses" etc. Evidently the two executors were the widow and a son of the testator. Unfortunately the will no longer exists, having been lost through the destruction and spoliation of the Charles City County records during the Civil War. Mrs. Susanna Stith is mentioned in the Charles City records in 1744 and in 1745 (Order Book, 1737-1750, pp. 310-352). Lieut. Col. Drury Stith and Susanna (Bathurst) his wife had issue: (See Genealogical Charts.)
